I have been working with Jim over at OTRATTW on some custom switch covers.
He did the artwork for free since I bought over $300 in switches lol
I have 20 total switches and 12 of which needed custom engraving and symbols. Cant wait till I get them

came home from school and made a double shear tab break. Instead of paying $4 a tab, i could make them for the cost of a couple hrs making this.


Sample piece. Bent it like butter

made all 10 of the seat belt tabs.


I knew empty wd-40 can were useful. Welded it to my knotcher so I can keep the allen keys and wrench handy now.


Finished the top of the cage. Plus put the driver side b spreaders in.




Need to finish the seat mounts and the x behind the seats. That will come tomorrow.

Thanks Man. I'll take a photo in the morning. I had to modify it little. All it is, is 2 angle iron pieces with a half inch gap. Originally the angle iron was 3x3. Today I cut it down to 2x3. Made it easier to remove the tap.

Doug. It works by pressing a piece of 1/8 plate in the center of the gap. This then pushes the steel down causing it to fold up. As it goes down you will get a nice u shape. The gap is set at 1/2" and the dies is 1/4".





On another note. I worked on the cage under the seats. This was a pain to get correct. Cause on the seat sliders I am using and how tall I am. I want the seats as low as possible so I have head room, seeing as I'm 6' 2".
Really the only tubes I have left is the x behind the seat.

Worked on the cage yet again. Only thing I have left is to mount the seats and weld the whole thing.

This weekend I got the x behind the seats in, then I got the gusset from the second b to the first b in. Then I did the rear of the cage so the fuel cell and tool box will be supported by the cage and not the tub. Then I put a tube going through the dash on the passenger side so I can make a removable handle.







Left enough room so I can make a bottle holder between the tool box and fuel cell. My plan is to have two radiator bottles, two gear oil, one 5 qt bottle of oil, and then some power steering and brake fluid. Only plan on carrying those items on long wheeling trips like Moab and Rubicon.

Finally broke down and bought my 1.25" die.
So I bent up some grab handles and made the grab bar for the passenger.


Then I spent some time thinking how I wanted to do my rear rack.
So then I bent this up and tig-ed the two ends together.


Going to get a buddy of mine to cut the bottom and sides out for me on his plasma table (since my dad wont let me buy one to put in the garage )

Today I took my old sub box that I made for my old 2000 GMC 3500 dump truck and modified it a little. Turns out its almost a perfect fit.


Took the center out and cut it down.





I plan to throw a coat of fiberglass resin over it to make it water proof.

Then I moved on to the seat mounts.
I used a hole saw and cut out some circles, then welded a nut on the back of them, and then tig welded them on to some tube.



Power of Blue


Driver side with the seat slider


Passenger side


From the top of my head to the top of the cage is about 3.5~4" of head room.
